We want to see, but we cannot, now, see the Lord Jesus Christ. But we can love him.
We want to touch and feel, but we cannot, now, touch the Lord Jesus Christ. But we can wait for him and believe in his promise to return.
We want to listen, but we cannot, now, hear his voice. But we can hear the words he taught in person on earth and the words he inspired his apostles and prophets to write in Scripture. And we can hope to hear his words of approval and welcome on the final day.
You have not seen him, but you love him. You do not see him now but you believe in him, and so you rejoice with an indescribable and glorious joy, because you are attaining the goal of your faith—the salvation of your souls. 1 Pet 1.8-9.
Much of what we want to do, we cannot. But the day will come when we can. Until then, there is much we can do. So let us do what we can now, that we might be able to do then what we cannot now.
